knyaz_vladimir The mix of shreds, melodies, thundering drums, occasional doomesque epicness and narrative of Adamantis, perfectly balanced between the speed of Euro-power and the attitude of US-trad, truly sends your mind away onto outer realms. Stealing Byron's wizardly words: "It's just our return to fantasy"

jeffrey_schley Soaring vocals, excellent riffage with hook-laden melodies, drums that don't fall short or over embellish like much of metal today. Overall a very solid album that sets the bar high for NA power metal. Really digging the trad doom sound that's woven into their brand of power metal. Great album fellas, cheers!

Carlos Alvarez Excellent performances, great production, killer songwriting that proudly wears its late 90s, German flavored Power Metal on its sleeve .. the awesome artwork is just the icing on this glorious slab of riffage \m/ Favorite track: Journey's End.

We're standing strong, as we fight off this evil We will not let it win The darkness calls My soul keeps feeling colder We must not let it in Fighting on, I rise above this evil swords are drawn and we shall prevail The demons rise and summon up the evil The sky begins to turn The sun is red and clouds begin to darken The ground begins to burn Fighting on, I rise above this evil swords are drawn and we shall prevail Lightning crashes down, the ground begins to rumble Black smoke rising as this world begins to crumble The battles won The light destroys the dark, but the war will never end We'll carry on Preparing for the battle for evil will ascend Fighting on, I rise above this evil swords are drawn and we shall prevail Lightning crashes down, the ground begins to rumble Black smoke rising as this world begins to crumble Bodies laying over the bloodstained ground The unbound souls are wandering around [Solo: Estrada] [Solo: Taft] Fighting on, I rise above this evil swords are drawn and we shall prevail Lightning crashes down, the ground begins to rumble Black smoke rising as this world begins to crumble Bodies laying over the blood stained ground The unbound souls are wandering around Wandering around

You wake me from my dreary thoughts This ancient throne holds no allure I renounce it all Dark tomes, accursed scrolls, decadent savagery A fallen people, lost and heartless Long gone, blissful days fall prey to cousin's rage This crumbling kingdom is our cage In your heart, my home I won't let you go You are the fire My soul will burn You are the star that guides the way, on a moonless night You were the only solace I knew You were my haven, shadow crowned, misbegotten dream Cold, restlessly I walk these halls The sword still haunts my waking thoughts As it howls for souls Blood tide upon the waves, my legacy unfolds A Dreaming City, burned and broken Spellbound, demon-faced, a forsaken prince of ghouls Forlorn, forgotten, in despair You are gone away Cruelest price I've paid You are the sea-breeze Dream uncompared I long to fall into your arms, safe within your light Your stolen soul now Lost evermore Love stricken down, forever bound, upon my thirsty blade [Solo: Taft] [Solo: Estrada] You are the fire My soul will burn You are the star that guides the way, on a moonless night You were the only solace I knew You were my haven, shadow crowned, misbegotten dream You are the sea-breeze Dream uncompared I long to fall into your arms, safe within your light Your stolen soul now Lost evermore Love stricken down, forever bound, upon my thirsty blade

Torn from the path I had chosen Cast adrift on the wind Destiny recast, my life Brought low, alone I lay bleeding Pawn of chance, a god's demands Reborn and yet hollow Memories in Shadow a bargain struck to pay The toll of hounds shall speed the way Cut down all the ones who betray I shall seek a new day Dreams of old shall all fade away Empire's slave no more, now I know how it must be No longer their tool, hero or fool Puppeteer's bane Cut out the disease, revenge shall be my vow Lost on this plain I now wander Blood of friends on my hands Behind her eyes, a shining light I know, I cannot believe it Push and Pull, how cruel the hand Of cards that was dealt us Memories in Shadow The creak of ancient chains Through Darkness's Warren lies escape Cut free from the bonds of fate I shall forge a new way Empire's slave no more, now I know how it must be No longer their tool, hero or fool Puppeteer's bane Cut out the disease, revenge shall be my vow [Solo: Krais] Cut free from the bonds of fate I shall forge a new way Dreams of old shall all fade away Empire's slave no more, now I know how it must be No longer their tool, hero or fool Puppeteer's bane Cut out the disease, revenge shall be my vow

Fire and brimstone at the gates of hell Demons arise from the place where they dwell Seen through the gates all the sinners that burn Suffering on crosses for Satan's return Sorcerers cast spells Black fire from the depths of hell Darkness shadows the land All take a stand We fight to be free from all the unholy Must keep fighting to ward off the beasts Rising from Hell as were warned by the priests Few men can contain their final farewell Fire and brimstone at the gates of hell Sorcerers cast spells Black fire from the depths of hell Darkness shadows the land All take a stand We fight to be free from all the unholy [Solo: Estrada] [Solo: Taft] Darkness shadows the land All take a stand We fight to be free from all the unholy Darkness shadows the land All take a stand We fight to be free from all the unholy

Imagination 05:27
Closing my eyes so I see In darkness I truly feel free again, oh so free Imaginations running wild Dreaming so freely like the days I was just a child I open my eyes and see what is there in front of me A magnificant beast before me I approach the beast so coutiosly walking forth so slowly The beast stands up on its feet Puts me on its back, I feel my heartbeat Its wings sprawl out as we sore Flying so high up in the sky A journey beyond this world We are free to imagine [Solo: Estrada] You just have to close your eyes To imagine the world in the skies A world full of surprise The magic in this world we live is filled with wonder and fantasy to give Its wings sprawl out as we soar Flying so high up in the sky A journey beyond this world we are free to imagine Visions of cities in clouds and dragons to protect the land can put a sparkle in your eyes with a little imagination

Scorned, away from home My chalice crumbling within my hands It defines my sin Their bells, they chime A cursed song reveals My only crime Was not to die Within their walls, Within their rights My ancestors cry for me From the other side The sunlight fades I’m overcome by shades If only I could make it out of this cage Steel, constricts my life And I can hear the pipes Oh why, do I feel asunder I just want to fly up high Lady life confines My view to the other side Pull the veil back, my friend And I’ll stare until the end A void stares back at me A pit filled with misery But shining above I see A city of destiny Which will it be? Soon, they’ll come to take what’s mine A reaper in man’s disguise The fallen sing to me from the other side They sing of loss, they sing of hope They’ll sing of my demise, taut at the rope At first light of day They’ll drag me away If only I could live for just a few more days The moonlight fades, the sunshine invades Bringing with it Death’s relentless gaze Threads, around my neck This dread, I can’t accept Ahead, this lonely path I go now, to the land I dread Father death, my guide Brings me to the other side We’ll cross the veil my friend And I’ll stay until the end The void lies below my feet A pit filled with misery But shining above I see The city of destiny Which way to go? Will I be freed? [Solo: Estrada] [Solo: Taft] Sprites, they come to me I’ve seen, them in my dreams I go, with them now To a place that I could not conceive With spirits at my side I head into the light The city of destiny Is almost within my reach What waits in there for me? The life that I wished to lead? The men that I had led? Destiny lies ahead The gates appear the end is near my path ends here

Aware of your tragic fate you fear your own born curse Your fate is written down and it has been sealed, must not be revealed Destiny is on the path the path that you created trying to avoid your fate but there your fate will wait Your fate is near it won't disapear You can't escape your fate Look up in the sky and realize trying You will live a lie You can't escape your fate It's your destiny and it will not change why can't you see Destiny is on the path you feel the wrath it brings Worried all your life of the oracle's prophecy Knowing whats to come and what you become You cant escape your fate Look up in the sky and realize trying You will live a lie You can't escape your fate It's your destiny and it will not change why can't you see The oracle's prophecy [Solo: Estrada] [Solo: Taft] You cant escape your fate Look up in the sky and realize trying You will live a lie You can't escape your fate It's your destiny and it will not change why can't you see

Second Sight 06:12
Tonight I’ll trust my inner sight The force that’s keeping me alive When whispers from the moon Leave my mind attuned A broken crown On the ground There they’ll find the fates There is where I wait Forever they’ll deny My curse of second sight Tied, this twine that binds us tight Forcing us to wander Down predetermined lives The strands I see telling me where to go, Who to be My heart beats fast as I see The threads of my destiny Forcing me to my knees The curse of my sight Forever enslaves me Midnight Visions invade my sight They show me worlds I can’t describe Where towers often loom Blocking the light of the moon A broken realm A dead realm There they’ll find our fate A world corrupt with hate Forever they’ll deny The truth of second sight Tied, this twine that binds us tight Forcing us to wander Down predetermined lives The strands I see telling me where to go, Who to be My heart beats fast as I see The threads of my destiny Forcing me to my knees The curse of my sight Forever enslaves me [Solo: Taft] [Solo: Estrada] Tied, this twine that binds us tight Forcing us to wander Down predetermined lives The strands I see telling me where to go, Who to be My heart beats fast as I see The threads of my destiny Forcing me to my knees The curse of my sight Forever enslaves me

A tale of war, when faith was spread by sword conquest and burn in the name of the church Teutonic order took our land by force they enslaved our brothers all in the name of the Holy Cross Mighty Sventovit Let your horse ride Bring us victory tomorrow Guide our spikes against the Christian heart! Heathen brotherhood Stand your ground The old gods are watching They will guide our hand The citadel of Arkona Is rising up from the sea We will face the invaders She will strike and let them bleed Heathen brotherhood Stand your ground The old gods are with us They will guide our hand! Time has passed, long forgotten tales of mighty warriors resting at your gates Teutonic order took our land by force Heathen brotherhood Stand your ground The old gods are watching They will guide our hand The citadel of Arkona Is rising up from the sea We will face the invaders She will strike and let them bleed Heathen brotherhood Stand your ground The old gods are with us They will guide our hand!

Surrounded by foes Forsaken by the gods A sudden blow... Will this night be my last? So cold is the air Though there’s life in me yet A lone bird cries As the sun stings my eyes The sound of horns Shields splintered by their hooves Through the roaring flames Our steel sings against our doom As battle ends I see the dawn Where are our sails? Are my people gone? As battle ends I see the dawn Where are our ships? I am left alone Raven, fly away fly afar to my dear ones tell them I was wed I’m not coming back Spiked club was my priest Thousand arrows witnesses Oh raven fly home, tell them! My thoughts turn toward home I dream of my kin My sword slips my grasp As dark wings descend... The howl of the wolf Spectres gather all around Through a crimson haze I see visions of my youth As battle ends I see the dawn Where are our sails? My folk are gone The battle ends I see the dawn Where are our ships? I am left alone Raven fly away Fly afar to my dear ones Tell them I was wed I’m not coming back Spiked club was my priest Thousand arrows witnesses Oh raven fly home, tell them! [Solo: Estrada] Raven fly away Fly afar to my dear ones Tell them I was wed I’m not coming back Spiked club was my priest Thousand arrows witnesses Oh raven fly home, tell them!
